Colorado Parks and Wildlife has cited a medical helicopter pilot from Page for harassing wildlife after a group of hunters observed him flying very low over an elk herd in a canyon near the headwaters of Granite Creek, southwest of Grand Junction.
Owen Park, 35, a pilot for Classic Lifeguard Air Medical in Page, was assessed 10 penalty points against his hunting and fishing privileges and issued a fine of $200, which he has paid.
A medical crew was also on board but only Park received a citation.
The aircraft was not carrying a patient at the time of the incident.
